Coastal News Roundup: Oil Spill Edition

Apr 20, 2018

It was eight years ago today that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig blew up, spewing more than 160 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico over several months.


This week on the Coastal News Roundup, WWNO’s Travis Lux talks with Times-Picayune’s Mark Schleifstein about what’s changed since then — and whether new regulations have made drilling in the Gulf safer.
